Dharamsala, March 10: Indian police late Monday issued restraint order barring 100 Tibetan exiles from going ahead with their plan to reach Tibet after their first day halt at Tibetan College for Higher Tibetan Studies, Sarah.
The Tibetan marchers have been issued a restraint order not to leave the Kangra district with warnings to take “all necessary actions” if they violate the order.
District Police superintendent Atul Phuljile had reportedly said the order followed an ”advisory” that he received from New Delhi to prevent the marchers from trying to reach the border.
Tenzin Choeying, Director of the SFT, India, one of the five Tibetan non-governmental organisations that initiated the march, however, says the marchers will not step back.
“We want to continue our non-violent march peacefully tomorrow”, Tenzin says and further insists that the Government and people of India have the moral obligation to support the non-violent and peaceful march.
Indian Police have also stopped similar protest march to Tibet in the past.
